Mitch Russo is committed to the value of coaching in business.
What’s your story?
In 1985 I founded Timeslips Corp, which became the largest time tracking software company in the world. In 1994, Timeslips Corp was sold to Sage, for 8 figures. At Sage I ran all of Sage U.S. as Chief Operating Officer, I was nominated 2X for Inc Magazine Entrepreneur of the Year
I, along with Chet Holmes & Tony Robbins, created Business Breakthroughs, Int’l a company serving thousands of businesses a year with coaching, consulting, and training services. I was President and CEO.
In 2015, I published The Invisible Organization
In 2018, I published “Power Tribes”
In 2021, I launched ClientFol.io
What excites you most about your industry?
I love helping people scale their companies through my Power Tribes Certification Process and by using ClientFol.io to streamline and accelerate coaching success.
What drives you in business to push beyond what other people consider normal?
Passion and natural curiosity drive me to always discover more about my markets, my products, and myself.
What have been the most useful skills you have learnt and applied in your journey?
I have learned how to create tribes that grow and sustain themselves and their host companies. In addition, I’ve bought, sold, financed, and grown businesses all my life, which leaves me with powerful and valuable wisdom I can impart to others.
What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?
Never give up, pivot instead, and I’ve done that all my life.
Who inspires you?
Twinkling stars in the Milky Way, beautiful women, and smart people with engaging personalities.
What have you learnt recently that blew you away?
Recently I learned that the fastest path to get anything I want is to stay happy and focus on what I love, eliminate “wanting” and feel the abundance I already am.
If you had your time again, what would you do differently?
I would have hired a business coach back when I went into my first business, but there were no such people at that time.
